    How much would it cost to have a relatively large ripple removed from a bell?

    It really depends on the ripple, but I have watched a friend of mine do just that before and it only takes about 10 minutes to remove the crease, and then a little more time to buff - a pretty easy repair really.

    I figure you are into it for about $30 - $40 depending on where you go - maybe more, but it never really costs me to have that kind work done since my friend is a repair tech. :D

    agreed - I had my B3b repaired several times for the same crease (dent memory) - It cost between $35-$45 each time I had it repaired

    Tell me that repair is not for the new 1500!

    what new 1500? Oh, that probably won't be purchased for a long, long time...

    Whew. So how did it happen? Does it have anything to do with the start of marching season...anything at all?

    Trumpet. Brother. Klutz. Stands.

    I believe that should be enough. Luckily, his is another Omega.
